Moving is the perfect opportunity to reevaluate your surroundings. When you’re in a new space, the furniture and appliances you might’ve taken for granted before can take on new dimensions. Has that couch been with you since your first post-university apartment? Are you ready to finally start hanging some of the art you’ve collected for years? Settling into a brand-new havn means it’s time to make your space your own, but you don’t have to do it all by yourself. There’s no shame in taking inspiration from the experts!
With new beginnings in mind, we’ve compiled a list of the top five home fashion trends for Spring 2020. Whether you’re starting fresh or just ready to reimagine your space, there are plenty of ways to breathe new life into your home decor.
Bring the Outdoors In
You don’t have to create a living wall to make an impact. Adding plants to your space can make a big difference, even if you’re just diversifying your houseplant collection. Plants add a pop of bright colour, and their varied textures create organic visual interest. Connecting with nature in your home is always a good idea, and there’s no better time than spring to get started.
Incorporate Vintage Accents
Maybe it’s a painting you inherited from your great-aunt, a chair with a nostalgic spindle detail, or a not-so-antique Grecian-style bust. Vintage accents tell a story and add perspective, but don’t let them overwhelm your space. Be intentional with their placement—think of these nods to tradition as playful statement pieces that can enhance your home’s overall style.
A New Take on Tile
A subway-tiled backsplash is a classic for a reason, but this year’s tiles are getting a lot more playful, with a wide variety of shapes, textures, and colours. Penny tiles can add a bit of heritage flair to your kitchen, while a bold feature wall in your bathroom can be a showstopper.
Wallpaper for the 21st Century
Wallpaper is back in a big way, but this time, it’s not about fussy prints or confusing borders. Modern wallpaper is all about large scale, bold colours, metallic accents, and tropical heat. Ready to make a statement but not sure you’ll love it forever? With vendors offering a wide selection of stick-on and temporary options, you can preview the impact to your space without making it permanent.
After years of minimal Scandinavian design and neutral palettes dominating the world of interior design, it’s time to embrace colour and lean into flamboyance. Animal print in the bedroom? Absolutely. Painting your ceiling a bold colour? Definitely. Incorporating velvet statement furniture? Now’s the time! Maximalism isn’t about anything and everything; like any cohesive aesthetic, you’ll still have to be intentional with your choices. If you’re interested, though, give yourself the freedom to explore big colours and textures.
